Station 2: At this station students will explore virtual fossils. Computer access is required.

Station 3: At this station students will read an article about the La Brea Tar Pits.

Station 4: At this station students will assemble paper bones to form a fossil skeleton.

Station 5: At this station students will watch a video on transition fossils. Computer access with YouTube is required.

Station 6: At this station students will explain how fossils have helped prove the theory of plate tectonics and continental drift.

Station 7: At this station students will examine an outcrop diagram and decide which fossils make good index fossils.
